Territorial recognition

Places of life, meeting and exchange, the territories occupied by the campuses of the Université de Montréal are an integral part of the ancestral lands of the first peoples. Its campuses in Montreal, Brossard, Laval, Saint-Hyacinthe, Mauricie, Lanaudière, Rimouski, as well as its facilities at Mont Mégantic and in the Laurentians, are located on the lands of the Kanien'kehá:ka, Anishinabeg, Abenaki, Atikamekw, Innu, Huron-Wendat, Wolastoqiyik Wahsipekuk and Mi'gmaq.

These nations have never ceded their rights or sovereignty over these lands and waters. The organizers recognize the devastating consequences of colonization on all first peoples.
